RSGallery2 3.1.0 for Joomla 2.5 and 1.7 is released!
« on: January 24, 2012, 05:51:32 PM »
Hello all,

We are proud to release RSGallery2 3.1.0 (for Joomla! 2.5.x and 1.7.x).

Note: This version will replace 3.0.1 which does not work on Joomla 2.5.x due to a backwards compatibility issue.

Major changes
  • Added View Access Level to galleries
    • Galleries in the frontend are only shown 1) if the gallery is published and the user has view access, or 2) if the user is the owner of the gallery (a red H icon will indicate unpublished galleries).
    • Items (e.g. images) in the frontend are only shown 1) if the gallery to which they belong to is published and the user has view access for the gallery, or 2) if the user is the owner of the gallery to which the item belongs and the item is published.
    • In My Galleries only those items and galleries are shown for which the user has View Access. Exception: Super Administrators see all items and galleries.
    • Note: View Access is not 'inherited': If you're not allowed to see gallery Fruit, then you won't see its subgallery Apples even when you have View Access to that gallery (if there is a menu-item linking directly to the subgallery Apples it will show, it's parent View Access does not matter).
  • Comment and Vote permission can be set per usergroup and per gallery.
    Comment and vote permission is no longer set in the Control Panel > Configuration > tab: Images > Commenting/Voting enabled, but in the Permission settings: Options button for the component and Set Permission button per gallery when editing a gallery (added message upon upgrade about this).
  • Captcha option for commenting on images: now uses Securimage 3.0 by Drew Philips ( and not the SecurityImages component.
  • Added the possibility of using parameters in Slideshow Parth (template parameters will be saved in future RSGallery2 upgrades). Think of slideshow transition effects, setting background and text colors and setting the size of the slideshow.  Instructions:
    • Go to the frontend and view a slideshow (this creates a params.ini file in the slideshow parth template directory, only when this file exists (and is writable) you can save your settings).
    • View settings: Backend > Components > RSGallery2 > Control Panel > Template Manager > Manage > select: Slideshow_Parth > click: Edit.
    • Edit settings and click Save.
  • Added choice for menu-item that links directly to the slideshow.
  • Fixed meta description and page title.

  • Fixed one Backwards Compatibility issue for Joomla! 2.5. The Joomla! team has done a really great job in making Joomla 2.5 backwards compatible with respect to 1.6 and 1.7. However, there are a few Backwards Compatibility issues and one of them does affect RSGallery2 3.0.1.
  • Created sliders for Configuration’s tab Images.
  • Removed some unused settings in the Configuration.
  • Moved Configuration setting FTP Path to Image Upload section and corrected base path information.
  • Upon Save in Configuration now using Joomla messages instread of RSG2 printAdminMsg
  • New gallery saves by default to first position, text describing this in Gallery New screen was wrong.
  • Added full italian (it-IT) translation available thanks to user Scioz.
  • Corrected missing language strings showing in pagination when you have a paginated list of galleries in the front-end.
  • Hardcoded textstring “(ex. C:\ffmpeg\ffmpeg.exe)” now translatable.
  • Removed directory preparedLanguages.

See the changelog for all the changes and bugfixes and feel free to report any bugs or problems in the forum.

The RSGallery2 team

Instructions for new installation
Joomla's Backend > Extensions > Extension Manager > Browse... (find the downloaded file) > Upload File & Install

Easy upgrade
Go to the Backend > Extensions > Install/Uninstall > Browse to package file > Click Upload File & Install
(Note: upgrade will automatically overwrite all RSGallery2 system files, but it will leave your images untouched.)

Upgrade when you have custom templates
   1. Backup your custom RSG2 templates if you have any;
   2. Uninstall previous version from Joomla backend (databasetables and images will be
       kept, but RSG2 template directory will be removed):
       Backend > Extensions > Install/Uninstall > Components > Select RSGallery2 > click Uninstall
   3. Install new version (install recognises old version number and will automatically upgrade):
       Backend > Extensions > Install/Uninstall > Browse to package file > Click Upload File & Install
   4. Install your custom RSG2 template if you had any;
   5. Redo any custom changes

With a little boy in the house I don't spend as much time on RSG2 anymore.

I still like RSG2, if you do too, please think about how you can invest some of your time in RSG2... the one remaining coding volunteer (Whazzup) can use your help!
